Cookies and exceptions always deleted

I would like Firefox to remember exceptions and store specific cookies that I need for the Microsoft authenticator, and other two-stage logins. Whatever setting I choose (untick delete cookiex and sitedata, assign websites to manage exceptions etc) upon closing Firefox everything is deleted, always. This means I can't use any authenticator to remember me when I want it to do so.

I used a third party cookie extension (Cookie AutoDelete) to whitelist some sites and it worked perfectly fine until an apparent recent update by Firefox. I am on Firefox 101.0.1 on Mac.

Any ideas?

Hi! I have the Firefox browser on my MacBook Pro and I also use the Mozilla VPN. I’ve been trying to sign into my Firefox account for several weeks now and keep getting a ‘Cookies and local storage are required’ error message. The problem is that cookies are already enabled. I have tried restarting, updating the browser, doing it with the VPN on and off, listing firefox as an exception, and everything else I can think of. I’m currently entering this on my phone, because the browser also won’t let me sign into my account on my laptop without enabling cookies and local storage.

Any suggestions? I keep getting stuck in a loop.

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 101.0.1

'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.'

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

I normally clear the history by choosing "Everything" from "Time range to clean" and choosing all checkmarks except "Site preferences".

How do I exclude a single site from the history deletion process to prevent the settings/cookies of that given site from being deleted ?

Feature Request, Cookies API - Help finding cookie source

Hello,

I am the developer of the "FlagCookies" - add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/flag-cookies/

I would like to make a request to include "window id" and "tab id" in the cookie "onCookieChanged" -Event triggered dynamically.

At the present state it is not possible to identify where a cookie is originating from, only the "cookies.cookie" values, but no values for "Window" and "Tab Id" which would dramatically help to assign a cookie to a particular domain even if the "cookie.originURL" or "cookie.url" is different from the surfed on website.

As an example, you can visit "https://freenet.de" which loads different ad trackers - which cookies are displayed as "Cross Origin" in Flag Cookies. A screenshot is attached.

In case you need clarification or more information, please let me know.

Firefox randomly signing me out of every account?

The past couple weeks I've had this issue 2-3 times now where after I start up my computer and launch Firefox, and I find am logged out of every last website I was logged into. However, it is not every time I launch, and seems to only happen the first launch of a Windows session.

I've never had this issue before. The only notable changes that have happened to my computer in the past several weeks are:

1) I now have a second Windows user account on my PC for work (I suspect this to be honest, but not sure why it would be like that)

2) I think Windows 10 did a random feature update against my will a month ago?

3) I installed Escape From Tarkov

I have uBlock Origin, NoScript, Ghostery, and HTTPS Everywhere. Nothing else besides those add-ons.

Aside from that, I went through Firefox log-in/session settings and everything is correct.

I even have cookie exceptions set to "Allow" for all of those sites (both HTTP and HTTPS URLs), so there is zero reason that this should be happening.

Its also worth noting that this is not every time I launch Firefox. It is seemingly random but happens upon my first launch of Firefox that Windows start up. POSSIBLY after I hit "Restart" on Windows instead of "Shutdown", but I haven't been able to test this theory yet.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Dear Firefox,

Thanks for reading this.

I use your superb browser to surf the web. One of the only sites I am having trouble with is Transport for London, www.tfl.gov.uk.

The thing about this site is, that when I go onto it, it simply freezes almost straight away. I use my wired mouse to try to scroll up or scroll down the site, and I cannot. It is just stuck. There are no scroll bars on the right to be able to click on to go up or down.

I am thinking this problem may have something to do with cookies. I say this, because the site is allright before the message comes onto the screen asking you to agree to cookies.

Is this a possiblity, do you think?

Or is there another possibility? For example, I have visited another forum, and told to increase hardware acceleration. Could this be the answer?

Any suggestions would be more than welcome, Yours Marek

I have twice come across a glitch on the Firefox version of tumblr. The notifications will remain entirely static, regardless of how many items are in my dash or how many people have interacted with my posts. I am sure this is a Firefox issue as logging onto Google Chrome removes this issue entirely. I have temporarily removed cookies and passwords for tumblr, but the issue has not improved.
